It's the stuff of which slapdash oaters and crime programmers are made but the obvious ambitions of Deliverance are supposed to be on a higher plane.

So many of Dickey's lumpy narrative ideas remain in his screenplay that John Boorman's screen version becomes a lot less interesting than it has any right to be.

It reminds us how thin the veneer of civilization is, how little it takes to wipe that veneer away and how little protection it affords in the face of danger.

Boorman's violent and vivid parable brilliantly captures the sinister quality of the mountain country when a band of city slickers are menaced in the wilderness.

The times when Deliverance really comes alive are when the actors shut up and the action takes over, which fortunately happens quite often.

This man-versus-nature story is also about man indulging his most uncivilized instincts, and in their various ways the four men on the canoe trip are transformed.
